I would like to take this opportunity to welcome new staff to Team Rushden, they have made an excellent impression and have swiftly fitted into our team. They are very well qualified and have already transformed their teaching areas. We are fortunate to attract such high caliber staff when there is a national shortage of teachers. The aim is always to retain the best staff, and I am thrilled that they have already found our pupils to be smart, well-mannered and very helpful. We have also supported our new staff with an induction programme so that they could hit the ground running.

We have now uploaded the Tove Learning Trust video onto our website, so please take a look and learn more about our trust and how we work together. Today we had a film crew in looking at the great work we are doing at this school, I will inform you when this is published.

In the assemblies this week we have celebrated our year 11 pupils and their GCSE exam results. Just to share a couple of successes, nationally the English GCSE standard 4 and above was 66.9%, our pupils achieved 78.5% and in science the national figure was 54.7% and our pupils gained 57.8%. Many of our pupils exceeded their target grades and we are so happy to see many of our pupils return again in TENC. Our current Head boy, girl and their deputies introduced themselves in assembly and shared their plans for the year ahead too. The student forum is a powerful body of pupils who make significant changes to improve pupils’ whole school experience. We have also revisited our Team Rushden values and discussed the importance of developing skills like self-regulation, growth mindset, empathy, conscientiousness, curiosity, resilience and working together.

Everyday our staff and pupils are out and about demonstrating the Team Rushden values. Yesterday I was opening a door for 2 year 11 boys when they stopped, thanked me and then insisted that they held the door for me instead, it did make me smile. I have lost count of the number of thank you’s, good mornings and good afternoons that I collect every day!

I am very much looking forward to welcoming you into our academy, we have our Open evening on Monday the 8th October for prospective y6 pupils. However, we are happy to showcase our school any time, please contact the school to see Team Rushden in action.

Kind regards

Mrs J Burton
